The Theological Educators Group was convened by Archdeacon John Holdsworth in Larnaca, Cyprus, this week. Clergy and lay people from Cyprus and the Gulf are planning exciting new formation opportunities for lay and ordained ministry. The group discussed various paths to Christian transformation, theological literacy, and practical competency. Theologians from the Near East School of Theology, Beirut, United Theological College, Bangalore, St. Padarn’s, Wales, the Exploring Faith Course and Queens College, Newfoundland shared their expertise on how their institutions can help the Diocese achieve its training and formation needs. Everyone was treated to traditional Cypriot hospitality with a delicious meze dinner at a village taverna.
